Onduline has launched a new durable roofing system, DURO SX 35, with advanced noise dampening qualities that make it ideal for auxiliary farm buildings, including those housing livestock.
Noise dampening material
Technical Sales Director Greg Hissey said: “As well as requiring protection from the elements, livestock can be badly unsettled by the loud noise of driving rain and hail pounding on the roof. With today’s increasingly unpredictable extremes of weather, that’s an important consideration.
“DURO SX 35 has been specially developed to deliver higher levels of sound absorption. This gives the animals a greater degree of acoustic comfort, particularly when compared to a metal alternative.”
While most roofing materials allow sound to travel through, Onduline® material absorbs part of it, reducing the amount of noise. The unique composition of Onduline roofing sheets bring superior acoustic protection thanks to their composition and particularly the network of cellulosic fibres.
